The Dustin Gray story
Dustin Gray was born in 1980 to a relatively small family in Northwest Arkansas. He grew up in Siloam Springs and graduated high school in 1998 and completed his first year at college for graphic design at OSU Tech in Okmulgee, OK just in time for Y2K, fun! Having narrowly survived the apocalypse Dustin moved home from college and set his sights on tattooing. However, a tattoo apprenticeship in those days was definitely not cheap, so Dustin went to workin the factory life. First, he worked several years for Leisure Time Products in Siloam Springs, manufacturing, packing, and shipping the same type of large wooden swingsets that can still be found in front of your local Sam’s today. Then it was a couple years apholstering furniture for La-Z-Boy. Finally through the help of his grandfather, Bob Gray, Dustin was able to afford an apprenticeship to tattoo in 2005. Its been a rocky road, full of ups and downs, but this is where Dustin found his true calling, and has been happy to tattoo a great deal of people from all over the state of Arkansas and Oklahoma ever since. He now lives in Fayetteville, AR where he owns Stella’s Electric Tattoo with his wife Maria, daughter Stella, and son Owen Arizona.
Megan Rose is an abstract artist and designer from Northwest Arkansas. She runs a small online business, Shop Megan Rose, and participates in her local arts community through markets, galleries, and pop-ups. The sole focus of her artwork is a collection of paintings called “Feminine Abstraction.” It celebrates the individuality and diversity of female expression. Her hope is that when someone views her work, it inspires a feeling of empowerment, joy, and brings to mind the brilliant women in their own lives. "Feminine Abstraction" is created with many artistic mediums, using acrylic paint and collage mixed media to create a sense of vibrancy that jumps off of the canvas.
Hello! My name is Kera. I have always had a love for the Macabre and never truly understood the disgust others show, I didn't truly
start exploring art outside of singing until my Sophomore year in high school. That is to say, my Theatre teacher always had my back and told me one day that he would love to go to a gallery viewing of my own design, Thank you Mr. Scheuer for being my first fan. I love my bold lines and the way I shade, the way I start with an eye and the piece just comes to me from that.
